No Lack of Sunshine

A Hard Sci-Fi Novel With a Hopeful Twist. “The air might be poisonous, but at least the sun always shines.” There was a reason why Earth colonized this place. Everything is familiar, consistent — consistency is a welcome reprieve, and Ava’s planet has plenty of it. The fifth to be born among the stars, Ava sets forth to make a name for herself despite this obscure claim to fame. Being raised by emotionless, loveless robots doesn’t exactly merit a natural flair for spontaneity or empathy, but Ava makes do. At the very least, she tries to. Her life is here on South Island, where the sea represents freedom and the air symbolizes a dangerous kind of thrill. But now, her existence is under threat. The autonomous supply ship fails to deliver. With only a few weeks’ worth of oxygen left, Ava and her beau must embark on a journey to retrieve more. However, what once was a straightforward quest slowly morphs into one rife with ambush. Something has affected the robots’ advanced processors, causing them to spiral into a fruitless quest for an artifact that may not even exist. And the more they wait, the more Ava’s in peril.

The Tapestry of Reality, Threads of Consciousness

New Edition. “All matter originates and exists only by virtue of the existence of consciousness. The mind is the matrix of all matter.” —Max Planck, originator of Quantum Mechanics, Nobel Laureate. We perceive, conceptualize, and interact with what we call “reality” through our consciousness, and consciousness is the mystery of mysteries. Consciousness is the thing most directly known to us, and, in the assessment of scholars, from philosophers to physicists, it is the only thing directly known to us. The vast tapestry of the energy-matter “reality” that surrounds us seems far less mysterious, even though less directly known. Scientific research has provided remarkable new windows into concepts of reality, revealing it to be composed of an infinite number of threads of consciousness. “The world is a construct of our mind’s sensations, perceptions, memories. It is convenient to regard it as existing objectively on its own. But it certainly does not.” —Erwin Schrödinger, Nobel Laureate “The so-called miraculous powers of a great master are a natural accompaniment to his exact understanding of subtle laws that operate in the inner cosmos of consciousness.” —Yogananda (A.D. 1893-1952) This book contains an exploration of consciousness and its most advanced abilities through accounts of explorer M.G. Hawking’s experiences in an ancient village deep in the vast frozen fortress of the Himalayas. Explore first-hand narratives of demonstrations of psychokinetic and extrasensory abilities, and in-depth descriptions of the esoteric knowledge that enabled the attainment of such exceptional powers. Advanced abilities of consciousness enable a person to influence a physical system without direct physical interaction, a capacity increasing recognized in the academic and scientific communities as part of the field of human ability. Although widely acknowledged in India, Nepal, Tibet and various Himalayan areas of Asia, paranormal abilities have in the Western World been largely disregarded by the general population. However, in the scientific community the perception is very different. For example, the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research program pursues an agenda of studying the interaction of human consciousness with the physical world to enable a better understanding of the role of consciousness in the establishment of “reality.” Results of the Princeton experimental studies, along with many similar research projects both private and governmental, here and abroad, have established paranormal abilities as operating at both the macroscopic level (using large-scale apparatus) and at the atomic level (using computerized random number generators). Although the test subjects in general have no real idea of how to focus their consciousness to influence the outcomes, over thousands of experimental runs the results have been far beyond chance expectation, demonstrating that subjects can influence outcomes that deviate significantly from the statistical norm, often by a factor of several billion-to-one. For those familiar with quantum physics, these results come as no surprise. “Atoms or elementary particles themselves are not real; they form a world of potentialities or possibilities rather than one of things or facts.” —Werner Heisenberg, Nobel Laureate As entertaining as it is enlightening, this is an incomparable book for anyone seeking enlarged knowledge and personal power. 2022 Edition, Nine Book Exploratory Anthology, e-reader page count 265 (estimated, actual count varies depending on the reading device used). A Kindle Unlimited Book. For more information, please see the ‘Look Inside’ feature on the book’s Amazon page. Thank you.

Why You Can’t Catch a Rocket to Mars: Some Personal Reflections on Science and Society, by Lyndon N. Smith

Have you ever wondered why you can’t catch a rocket to Mars? Or Jupiter, or Pluto, or the nearest star? The latter is an exciting prospect, since it is orbited by an ‘exo’ (earth-like) planet that might support life. This richly illustrated book will explain why getting there is not as crazy an idea as you might think. It will also help you understand what has been holding back science and technology for many years, or decades, and what we can do about it; as well as providing a fascinating glimpse into a wide range of fantastic future possibilities. Artificial intelligence, or AI, which is presented as a key means for us to achieve these goals, is discussed in depth. The author, Lyndon N. Smith, is a professor in AI at a major UK university, with a background in physics and engineering, and over 25 years of research experience (on both sides of the Atlantic). After publishing 180 scientific papers and a number of academic books, he explains in this unique, provocative, and accessible book, not only what amazing tasks can be achieved by modern AI techniques such as ‘convolutional neural networks’ – but also how they actually work! This is followed by an enlightening survey of potential and definite threats that we all face (with possible responses), that include Brexit, contact with extra-terrestrials (ET), near Earth objects (NEOs) colliding with the Earth, viruses, and global warming. There is then a discussion of fascinating technological developments that we may expect to see in the near, and far, future. Here topics addressed include: transport, robotics (from Robby the Robot through to Data), elimination of the need for instrumentalities, prospects for abundant power, manufacture of any objects we desire, as well as the likelihood of a number of miscellaneous miracles that include: invisibility, truly useful nanotechnology, and space elevators. The author goes on to discuss the effects we may expect such advanced technologies to have on our lives, including the prospects for eternal life and attainment of velocities in excess of that of light for interstellar travel; with all the astonishing implications the latter would have for overcoming the previously mentioned threats, as well as facilitating human exploration and possible colonisation of the Milky Way Galaxy and beyond. As though this wasn’t enough, a range of predictions are then given of the amazing technological developments expected in the far future. The author encourages us to ‘reach for the stars’ and concludes that we have it in our power to realise a new Golden Age for humanity – providing we can find the wisdom to avoid destroying ourselves in a nuclear Armageddon and instead focus our efforts on the powerful potential of future research and development. If you have any interest in science and technology, and its effects on society – and more specifically your future life (and who hasn’t?), you will find this book engrossing and enlightening. As well as employing a highly accessible and breezy style, the author makes liberal use of quotations and allusions to well-known figures from popular culture. The result is a very engaging book that you will not be able to put down nor stop thinking about. You will wonder why we don’t hear more about how all the technologies that surround us can and should help improve our quality of life (much more than they currently do), both now and in the future. You will understand why we need to spend more time and effort on looking to the future rather than agonising over the past. And, you will never view Sherlock Holmes or Star Trek in the same way again!

Meet Prof. Lyndon N. Smith

About Prof Lyndon Neal Smith PhD Lyndon N. Smith has a strong interest in science and technology, and a particular fascination with developments in physics and engineering that can have potentially revolutionary effects on the way we live. He feels that scientific and technological developments of recent decades have been less dramatic than was expected, say, seventy years ago and that an investigation into why this is the case and what we can do about it is well overdue. His background includes degrees in physics, robotics and engineering, as well as 26 years of research experience in the UK (and USA), which has resulted in 180 technical papers, two books and the supervision of 20 PhDs. As well as being a professor at a major UK university, he is also something of a bibliophile; but has had a long-standing concern about the lack of accessibility of many science and technology related publications, in terms of the associated difficulties with public engagement with science, as well as reducing the likelihood of science having a strong and beneficial impact on society. He believes that one way to increase the accessibility of science is to employ an informal style, and to make liberal use of quotations and allusions to well-known figures from popular culture. This is what he has aimed to do with his new book. His intention is to make you wonder why we don’t hear more about how modern technologies can revolutionise our lives. He believes we need to spend more time and effort on looking to the future rather than agonising over the past. And he uses discussion of people and events from the past, as well as various predictions of the possible future, to throw light on the situation for science and technology, and what developments we might expect going forward. Lyndon lives in Central Somerset, with his wife and son.

Tired of Being Tired

A very short non-fiction eBook (Just over 6000 words) written in a scientific manner. Each chapter provides actionable steps you can take to solve the proposed issue of sleep: What to eat, what to do, what not to do, quirky bio hacks, and most of all scientific reasoning for the reader to understand the importance of a claim and why it is recommended. There are parts of the book that are whimsical and filled with dry humor, so perhaps not a good fit for a person with a strictly serious demeanor. The best fit for the book would be people who have an issue (particularly with sleep) and are looking for an enthusiastic guide to present possible solutions for them to pick from. Some points are obvious yet detailed insight is shared upon those. The majority of the book should contain information you did not know or did not know you needed to know. I hope you join me in the quest to master the process of sleep!

Meet Milan Venter

Just a BSc Physiotherapy (Physical Therapy) student experimenting with writing eBooks. My favorite genre is non-fiction science, particularly around the health and fitness space. My preferred style may be a little eccentric but it would be difficult to call boring. I plan to write one good book a year from now on (they’ll be longer than my first one!). This is purely a passion project for me, I will still write despite the lack of feedback.

Curious Matrix

Curiosity is all around us. You just need to explore it. This book is doing exactly that – exploring various questions and hypotheseses about past, present and future world and society we’re living in. What you are going to read is by no means scientifically accurate in every way or a complete truth, but it is one man’s reflections on different topics with a pinch of creativity. A good part of the book is supported by various research, but a good portion is open to the imagination. That’s why I wrote this book, to share my view, which can be correct, it can be fictional and imaginable, but it is curious and explorational in many ways. That is the essence of writing – to explore your mind while bringing fiction closer to nonfiction. The book consists of 18 chapters that are not connected subjectwise but are somehow connected in curiosity. Those chapters are structured to make you question your foundations of thinking and consider difficult subjects. Whether those are; a future world with sex robots, a world without weapons, or perhaps a world without electricity, I think they are very interesting questions that are open to interpretation.

Meet Domagoj Pernar

Born and raised in Croatia, Domagoj Pernar was always a curious fellow. From his young days, he was interested in many different topics ranging from Russian authors such as Dostoevsky to interests in computers, informatics science, and mechanics. Later in life, he started researching philosophical theories and the potential for a dystopian end of society (perhaps that’s why he was born in 1984.) These interests in the philosophy and meaning of life, potential future developments of the world, and overall curiosity about today’s (and past) world led to journaling of his thoughts.

Earth’s First Civilization, Antarctica, 55 Million B.C.

Explore evidence of an Advanced Civilization that existed on the Antarctic Continent in the Paleocene Epoch, and other mysterious cultures of prehistory. To explore these remarkable finds, this book has four primary purposes: 1) to present archaeological and other competent evidence demonstrating that civilizations of tremendous antiquity once existed on our planet—evidence either known, inexactly known, or currently tentative; 2) to examine evidence regarding the true age of those civilizations; 3) to explore the possible origins of those civilizations; and 4) to reveal the profound esoteric knowledge and technical abilities possessed by the cultures of those civilizations. For decades the archaeological community labored under the theory that human civilization began after the last Ice Age. The theory conjectured that, prior to that time, humans were no more than primitive hunter-gatherers incapable of communal organization or sophisticated abilities, and it was only after the last glacial period—following the melting of the 10,000 foot thick ice sheets that covered much of the northern portion of the world’s continents—that our human ancestors began to develop agriculture and complex economic and social structures, sometime around 4000 B.C. Contemporary discoveries have dramatically undermined those theories. Modern research has unearthed buried civilizations and discovered hidden cities one after another—archaeology now reconstructs an unsuspected antiquity of man and paints a canvas of stunningly mysterious dimensions. Previous academic accounts of the origins of civilization have fallen forfeit to evidence from archaeological sites worldwide, including Thebes (c. 37,900 BC), Edfu (c. 18,000 BC), Turkey (c. 12,000 BC), Bolivia (c. 15,000 BC), Indonesia (c. 22,000 BC), and, most intriguingly, on the Antarctic Continent. The stunning discovery in Antarctica, if fully confirmed, will represent the greatest archaeological find of history. Organization & Content: Part I of this book explores the true antiquity of civilization on this planet, examines the ancient traditions and theogonies that shed light on the existence and age of prehistoric civilizations, details the substantial evidence for a Paleocene civilization on the Antarctic continent 55 million years ago, and takes an inside look at recent astronomical and cosmological discoveries. As the study of antiquity is properly accounted purely academic except as it may be made living knowledge which illuminates and enriches our contemporary life, a comprehensive Special Bonus Supplement containing Parts II and III of this book explore the extremely rare arcane knowledge of the ancient world, along with the powerful abilities that can be attained from the study of that knowledge, ones that convey benefits of great value in our modern world. Doubtless many of the very earliest chapters of our planet’s history will lie forever silent under her most desolate soil and deepest waters, yet extant legends and traditions have been too readily set aside—academic pundits love to brand as mythical the accounts which have endured the millennia, and which mischievously persist. We invite you to explore amazing discoveries and knowledge that for long millenniums has remained concealed under layers of legend, myth, and secrecy. A truly incomparable book for anyone interested in expanding their knowledge and personal power, and especially fascinating for anyone interested in the realities behind the ubiquitous legends of antediluvian civilizations and the possibility of ancient extraterrestrial influences. 2021 Edition, for more information, please see the ‘Look Inside’ feature on the book’s Amazon page. Thank you.
